3D Printed Vacuum Former

A great example of using a 3D printer to make something that makes things. It’s available on Thingyverse and coupled with a powerful vacuum you can make molds of anything you like. The creator says you can use it to make molds of 3D things you have printed. I suppose you could also just print the mold directly but then you don’t get a decent enough mold for making chocolate wonders.

3D printers are ace.

Open Source 3D-Printed Watch

The OTM-02 (Open source Time Machine – version 2) is an open source watch design in development. The 7mm watch module will be housed in a 3D printed case, an intermediate design of which is pictured above. The development is still in progress with the release of a 3D CAD data for a printable case planned for end of April 2013.

OTM-02 is a 3D printed wristwatch.

A stepper motor built pretty much from scratch using some nails, magnet wire, magnets, a digital controller (okay, that wasn’t built from scratch) and the wonders of a 3D printer.
